Playing as the NLF player in the '65 to '73 scenario.

Each turn, I'm on turn 7 now, every one of my on-map units has the "Spotted" comment on them.

??????

How is this? In jungle hexes and not having moved?

This means my units are visible, yes? We have FOW on.

No. It means that hex is visible to YOU. It tells you nothing about the enemy's recon of the hex.

Fog-of-War is applied to hexes under ENEMY control. So, if you have spotted or observed hexes in enemy territory, you can see what's in the hex. If you have unknown hexes in enemy territory, then you don't know if any enemy units are in those hexes.

So it pertains to the hex I'm in? If the term "spotted" refers to what I see, they should change it to "spotting" as "spotted' means I've been seen.

Spotted means it has been spotted by you. You don't know what hexes the enemy has spotted or observed.
